NY Planned Parenthood affiliate condemns founder Sanger as racist - True North Reports

In this time of heightened awareness about America’s troubled racial history, Planned Parenthood affiliate has finally admitted what history so plainly shows - founder Margaret Sanger was a racist eugenics supporter. Will Vermonters also call for Vermont’s politically influential PP affiliate to admit its checkered past? Should they?

““The removal of Margaret Sanger’s name from our building is both a necessary and overdue step to reckon with our legacy and acknowledge Planned Parenthood’s contributions to historical reproductive harm within communities of color,” Karen Seltzer, chairwoman of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York’s board, said in a statement reported by the New York Times. The Manhattan clinic also urged city leaders to remove Sanger’s name from a street sign adjacent to their building, according to the Times."
